So I purchased a solar system from Tesla Dec 2019 got activated late march. Been running less than 3 months, and now a BIGGER system is 35% cheaper than what I paid.
I got the 7.54 KW Med system for 21,500, and now they just came out with 8.16 system 16000. I guess technology changes and costs go down, but this is not the case in 3 months. Worst yet, after the install they used a really cheap inverter on my system which was some delta crap, and I can't monitor energy usage or anything, it only shows me generation. My father in law who I referred, bought the solar rental where he pays a fixed amount a month... He got a bigger system than mine (not the large), along with the better inverter which shows all the data one expects... Do I have any legs to stand on to request a better inverter that can show all of this along with maybe more panels to at least equalize my system which actually produces very poorly due to the tree cover and the fact that optimizers were not used and just a delta inverter which has 2 strings.
